Labor Day (Sept. 3) pays tribute to the struggles and achievements of America’s working people. The labor movement, including CTA’s past and ongoing efforts, has fought tirelessly for workers’ rights. You can thank unions for the eight-hour workday, weekends, the end of child labor, and paid holidays such as Labor Day.

Help your students understand the history and importance of the labor movement — all month long. Go to CTA’s special page and to for Labor Day curriculum resources, including K-12 lesson plans from the American Labor Studies Center. #LaborDay2018
